Smartkem signs letters of intent with two Asian display manufacturers

The intention of these agreements is to transfer tru-FLEX technology into existing Asian production lines once process feasibility has been established

SmartKem has announced the company has signed Letters of Intent (LOI) with two leading Asian displays manufacturers. The agreements signify increasing interest for SmartKem’s semiconductors, with Asian manufacturers collaborating to drive manufacturing, integration and commercialisation of organic thin-film transistor (OTFT) technology in the flexible electronic display market.

The intention of these agreements is to transfer tru-FLEX technology into existing Asian production lines once process feasibility has been established. SmartKem will work closely with its Asian display partners to accelerate technology transfer processes to ensure 100% compatibility, and full integration.

Steve Kelly, Founder and CEO of SmartKem, said, "This is a truly exciting time for SmartKem. The signing of these LOIs in Asia will allow SmartKem to gain significant traction for the tru-FLEX® platform in one of our key geographies; and a global hub of the electronics sector. We are excited to develop new flexible display applications and next generation technologies in partnership with our new associates." Steve added, "This comes at a time when our global footprint is ever expanding, with our first Asian office due to open in Hong Kong later in 2015 alongside a dedicated Asian technical support team."
